As we are off-grid, we must be careful with our power. We do not have a microwave, dishwasher, dryer or air conditioning. Cellphone coverage is patchy.

Michelle and Garth's farm is very remote and quiet but only a short drive away from Hokitika.

  • 5 of 5

Michelle and Garth's farm is very remote and quiet but only a short drive away from Hokitika. Adorable farm animals, lovely big room, scrumptious homemade breakfast and clean bathroom. Definitely visit the Glow Worm Dell after dark on SH6 and enjoy a meal at the Beachfront Hotel Oceanview restaurant.

The property is close to hokitika if you have a car- lovey spot, a really NZ experience. The room we stayed in was really large and comfortable and had everything a family could want in terms of toys, books and breakfast and comfy beds!
